When you start with a camera as solid as the original A7, you don’t need to make a lot of drastic changes in the follow up. And indeed, they haven’t in the Sony A7 II camera. Still powered by a fantastic 24 megapixel full-frame sensor, this sequel adds 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization. A first for a full-frame mirrorless camera.
It also boasts 30% faster AF speed and 1.5x better tracking performance, support for the XAVC S video codec, a magnesium alloy front panel, a reinforced lens mount, and a larger front grip that features a new front dial and a more natural position for the shutter button.
